Thea Dodds is loved by clients for her photojournalism style. They describe her as invisible on their wedding day, yet the pictures prove she was right there for the most important moments. She’s dedicated to greening the photography industry, and provides discounts to clients who plan weddings that use ecologically conscious vendors.
We created a channel for her to share her philosophy, showcase her portfolio and hear from her clients.
She is the co-director of a non-profit organization, Greener Photography which has hundreds of members across the globe. Thea explains that by archiving photos using frames that are built to last and on printed natural fiber papers, we can reduce our environmental impact.
See what her clients say:
Lindsay and Voss: “Anyone can take formal pictures. But she really made them look like works of art. Back at the reception she had set-up a laptop with a bunch of photos from the beginning of the day all the way through the wedding. It was great to see those. Tons of people were looking and them and they were saying ‘I didn’t even realize she was taken photos of me’.”
Erin and Ryan: “I was looking for someone who was environmentally conscious. She’s very personable, easy-going, and willing to work with you and see what it is you’re interested in getting out of your wedding photos.”
Emily: “We chose a place because the setting was awesome. We wanted artistic shots of the day, this photojournalistic feel. It was pretty awesome to see them.”
Karen and Hugh: ”She’s very non-invasive. It was huge for me not to have somebody in your face all of the time posing for pictures.”
Sara: “She had two photographers with her and I think she did a tremendous job of capturing every moment that I recall really enjoying.”
Jillian and Michael: “I wanted someone to capture the emotion of the day. The pictures were much better than I expected. She’s so easy to work with.”
Amy and Jon: “You can tell she captures the moments that you miss because the wedding goes by so fast. Everybody always says, I wish I had a better photographer because I don’t remember any of my wedding.”
